Now that the Audi Q4 e-tron Concept has finally been revealed, both on the interwebs and in the flesh, there’s a lot to learn. It’s not just a shrunken e-tron SUV (okay, it sort of is) and it has some personality of its own. But not all of it is necessary to know, so we picked the five most important things about the new Audi Q4 e-tron and list them in this new video.
The Q4 e-tron just made its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and it’s the third all-electric e-tron model from Audi in a year. This time last year, at the 2018 Geneva show, the original Audi e-tron SUV was on display wearing full camouflage. So just one year later and there are three electric models: the Audi e-tron, the e-tron SUV and the new Q4 e-tron.
Admittedly, the last two are still just concept cars but they’re very production-ready concepts, showing off what the eventual road cars will realistically be like. The Audi Q4 e-tron Concept is the more production-ready of the two, though. I think it needs reflectors on the outside and its good to go, honestly. Everything about it makes it look like it could be on the road right now. It even has production-ready side mirrors, rather than the funky cameras.
Personally, I also think it looks really good. It’s muscular, sporty and surprisingly pretty. When you first think of an electric crossover that will compete with the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, you don’t instantly think of beauty. However, the Audi Q4 e-tron is quite the looker for a crossover. Okay, so it’s grille is a bit funny but the rest of it looks great.
Inside, it’s a bit of mashup between the Audi e-tron and the Audi Q3. No bad thing, as both cars feature excellent cabins, but it might not be as exciting as some fans would have hoped.
Overall, the Audi Q4 e-tron seems to be a great looking car, an efficient car and one that should excite traditional customers enough to make the switch.
